Vintage, Modern, & DIY Holiday Gift Guide

I may be weird, but I actually really love looking at gift guides this time of year.  Admittedly, since I have so few real-life vintage friends... It often helps me discover cool things I've missed for myself, haha!

So if you are like me and have many non-vintage-wearing friends and relatives, you'll still find this gift guide helpful.  There are vintage, modern, and handmade items to inspire and equip you for the season's gift-giving!

1940s Victory Suit

Flashback Summer: 1940s Victory Suit - Veterans Day outfit

This past Veterans Day was the best one I've ever had!  It was my first time spending the day with other military community members, and it was extra meaningful and fun.  My husband is an Air Force officer currently in a military chaplaincy program at a seminary, and we spent the morning in a chapel service.  We sang old hymns, recognized veterans and current service members, and heard a message from a high-ranking general.  It was full of beautiful music, meaningful content, and symbolic tradition.  All of the program members were dressed in their finest uniforms and looking spiffy!

1930s Bonnie


This morning I rewatched the History Channel miniseries version of "Bonnie & Clyde" that is currently on Netflix.  I really love this version!  I think it captures the story of these criminal lovers well, not to mention including fabulous 30s fashions!

Healing in Autumn

Flashback Summer: Healing in Autumn - vintage shawl warm outfit

Dang, it is a rough "day after" for us Americans.  The election has been a really horrible process for all parties, and there is a lot of pain and division in our country.  Thus I've got just a nice, easy outfit post to look at for today.

I'm not going to say much besides that.  Please pray for the U.S. and us Americans!  We would appreciate it greatly.

BIG NEWS! - Flashback Summer Shop Opening!
